Julio's story

Julio lives in the district of La Venta, which is characterized by great green landscapes due to the agriculture which is developed in the area. Julio is a very hardworking man who has achieved success little by little, in spite of adversity.

Julio lives with his wife and two children. He does everything in his power to provide what is necessary for them to succeed, and he makes sacrifices daily so that they can have the opportunities that he never had. For this reason, he works every day as a construction worker. He works for about 8 hours a day, although sometimes he works more depending on the type of construction he is doing. He believes that he is successful because he is very responsible and thorough in his work.

Julio is very grateful for the Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help he will be able to construct a bathroom in his home. Currently he only has a latrine, so he will now be able to improve his family's quality of life. He will continue working every day to make his greatest dream come true: for his children to have a good profession and to see his house completely finished.
